Adam Bomb Squad is a  collection created by The Hundreds, it consists of 25,000 unique combinations of bombs based on the Ethereum .[4]

The Hundreds (Founders)

The Hundreds is a global, community-based streetwear brand with an emphasis on People Over Product.

Founded in 2003, Bobby Kim (Bobby Hundreds) and Ben Shenassafar (Ben Hundreds) formulated the project out of a studio apartment and the cash in their pocket. Eighteen years later, The Hundreds is regarded as a streetwear pillar, our flagship store anchoring the Fairfax District, and having collaborated with the likes of Adidas, Disney, Stanley Kubrick, Nipsey Hussle, Pum, Jackson Pollock, Pepsi, Back to the Future, Larva Labs, and .

Overview

Adam Bomb Squad is an NFT project by The Hundreds, consisting of 25,000 unique combinations of bombs and accompanying backgrounds related to our history over the last two decades.

Every Adam Bomb Squad NFT features a Bomb and a Background. All Bombs were designed by The Hundreds at some point in the last 18 years, and most were featured on T-shirts, apparel, and billboards. The Backgrounds draw on unique patterns like custom camouflages and plaids that The Hundreds employed in its seasonal collections. Here are just a few of the thousands of stories that accompany your 1-of-1 NFT.

Adam Bomb Squad, comprised of unique, 1-of-1 jpegs of characters. The bombs will only be available for a short window of time before what doesn’t sell "blows up".

Wear your bombs on hoodies and in the physical world. Wear your bombs on your profiles and in the Metaverse. Join the Adam Bomb Squad today. This is where the future of fashion begins.

It tells the 18-year-old story of The Hundreds. While every other NFT Collectible is setting up a new universe, Adam Bomb Squad recalls a deeply ingrained history that has intersected with its community throughout its lives. Every single bomb and background pattern is pulled from a season between the years 2003 and 2021, corresponding with milestones and memories that our customers have cherished along the way.

The first stage of Adam Bomb Squad begins as a digital mirroring of streetwear. Its community will pick up these JPEGs the way they would collect T-shirts. They’ll wear them as their avatars. They’ll deep-dive into the rarities and stories. The long-term goal, however, is that Adam Bomb Squad will institute a new way of conducting and consuming brands – streetwear, fashion, and beyond.[1]

Advantages

  1. The art is not computer-generated. Because the NFT s were made by humans, it will take humans to quality-control the art.
  2. This project is 2–3x the size of other projects so the size of the deployments(e.g. IPFS) and volume for checking is much larger.
  3. The team didn’t start from scratch. This makes ABS special and adds longevity and depth to the project. It also means that they can’t make up attributes from anywhere. Everything they write and say about the art needs to be fact-checked against its history.[2]

The Story

Longtime followers of The Hundreds are well-acquainted with our mascot, Adam Bomb. Three years into its LA-based streetwear brand, Ben suggested to Bobby that he draw a character-version of the Solid Bomb that The Hundreds had already been running as an icon.

Bobby stayed up late illustrating an anticipative bomb, inspired by Saturday Morning cartoons and vintage advertising mascots. The black, red, white, and yellow color combination was stolen from Mickey Mouse. His silent nature was derived from Garfield. And, the notion of him being our imaginary sidekick pointed back to Calvin and Hobbes. Metaphorically, the bomb never totally explodes, but is always on the verge, riding the line.

In the early hours of the morning, Bobby blogged the character and asked The Hundreds’ followers to name him Of the thousands of entries, two different people suggested Adam Bomb. Bobby loved the idea of giving an anthropomorphic sidekick a human name, like Brian Griffin, the dog from Family Guy.

Initially, Adam Bomb had a tough time getting off the ground. His first cameo was on the back of a Freshjive collaboration T-shirt in 2006. He was then incorporated onto a crewneck sweatshirt. But, it wasn’t until he was re-introduced as a basketball (Bridge Burners Adam), that he gained traction in the marketplace.

Along the way, Bobby illustrated two more bombs to round out Adam’s world: Madam Bomb and Badam Bomb. Madam was the face of a short-lived women’s component for The Hundreds called Tens. Badam popped up as the dark antagonist. Together, the three comprise the Adam Bomb Squad.

Adam Bomb never explodes, but he definitely blew up. Over the past 15 years, he’s become the face of not only The Hundreds, but a streetwear generation. He shows up on skaters and celebrities, at awards shows and in music videos. Adam Bomb’s guest-starred in Pixar movies and topped the tallest Times Square billboard.

Today, Adam Bomb has become one of the most recognizable and well-loved mascots in fashion, proudly carried as a streetwear badge, as a status symbol, or to notify the world that you’re part of a movement. As the physical world continues to cross over to the Metaverse, however, we see the next iteration of Adam Bomb Squad representation as NFTs.

Meet the Bombers

Every Adam Bomb Squad NFT features a Bomb and a Background. All Bombs were designed by The Hundreds at some point in the last 18 years, and most were featured on T-shirts, apparel, and billboards. The Backgrounds draw on unique patterns like custom camouflages and plaids that The Hundreds employed in its seasonal collections. Here are just a few of the thousands of stories that accompany your 1-of-1 NFT.

1. Adam Bomb:

Adam Bomb is The Hundreds’ world-famous mascot. Bobby Hundreds illustrated a cartoony Adam Bomb with an anxious, expectant face, based on The Hundreds’ logo at the time, an iconic silhouette called Solid Bomb. Over the years, Adam Bomb blanketed the world, proudly worn by generations of streetwear fans, topping Times Square’s highest billboard, and collaborating with the biggest name brands and artists. Adam Bomb is the leader of the Adam Bomb Squad and is one of the most recognizable faces in fashion today.

2. Madam Bomb:

Although The Hundreds started off as a men’s brand, early on, there was a sister line called TENS that shared the same inspiration and aesthetic. Madam was the TENS’ brand mascot and borrowed Adam's same colors and styling, but reflected the strong and charismatic women that surrounded us in streetwear. Unfortunately, TENS only lasted a few seasons, but Madam was intermittently brought back into The Hundreds’ world, recently making a cameo in the 2021 Adam Bomb collection. Today, she holds it down as an on/off-again love interest for Adam, and a good and loyal friend to the Adam Bomb Squad.

3. Badam Bomb:

Every hero deserves a villain and in the case of Adam Bomb Squad, Badam fits the bill. Badam’s behavior and attitude are distilled from the core streetwear cool guys that grumbled and hated in the early 2000s. He is never excited about anything, is irritated by Adam Bomb’s popularity, and wants nothing to do with the Adam Bomb Squad. The only reason why he sticks around is that he secretly enjoys the limelight. His bitterness is what constitutes his identity. Things always suck, until he can look back on it later and say he did it first. Badam is as classical streetwear as it gets.[3]
